Liv Lisa Fries - Charlotte Ritter, Babylon Berlin

Babylon Berlin is a German television series created by Tom Tykwer, Hendrik Handloegten and Achim von Borries. Set in 1920s Germany, the series follows the police chief Geeron Rath who is transferred to the Berlin vice squad to dismantle a pornographic film network belonging to the Russian mafia. With the help of the ethically challenged lieutenant Bruno Wolter and the ambitious young secretary Charlotte Ritter, the team tries to solve the case while juggling political and diplomatic implications.


Charlotte Ritter is a police secretary who uses her resourcefulness and connections to investigate a series of crimes in 1920s Berlin. A young woman, "boyish" and feminist, wild, smart and resourceful, she dreams of becoming the first woman inspector in the criminal brigade.

Coming from a poor background and having a stormy relationship with her family, her only wealth is her affection for her little sister Toni and her unfailing optimism. To make ends meet, to help pay the rent and feed her family, she occasionally prostitutes herself in the basement of the Moka Efti cabaret after nightfall.
